  • Patent number: 5918181
    Abstract: A method and apparatus provide for operating and locating a digital cordless telephone (DCT) handset among an integrated network of base stations. The present system utilizes a standard communication protocol to establish radio communication links between terminals and a network of base stations, where each base station is directly interfaced to a local exchange and is capable of providing access to the public and/or private telephone network. Each base station is a network node that contains a copy of a common database that may be updated, as needed, to provide current information on the location of individual terminals. The common database contains various information on each base station, each terminal, and the latest location of each terminal at a particular base station.

  • Patent number: 5511090
    Abstract: A cordless, battery-operated telephone of relatively low power consumption suitable to operate in license-exempt spectrum and which may employ an established communication protocol, such as the CT-2 communication protocol, is realized by providing a direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) modulator/spreader and demodulator/despreader in a battery-operated handset in connection with an intelligent CT-2 controller to which is added additional circuitry and functionality in the handset for acquiring, pulling-in and tracking, in both operational and low-power-consumption standby modes, a received DSSS signal from a base station unit.
